Your Festival Radio

The Bolton Food and Drink festival starts tomorrow and we'll be previewing the event on tonight's 'Foodie Thursday with Jojo' from 6pm.

Foodie Thursday is Bolton FM's weekly two hour serving of 'beats and eats', a delicious mix of music and food. 

Between Friday and Monday, we'll be bringing you interviews from the Festival's main chefs - Michael Caines, Nadiya Hussain, Ainsley
Harriott, James Martin; as well as Aiden Byrne, Andrew Nutter and the Little Diamond Theatre Company, all under the banner of "Bolton FM your Festival Radio, supported by Paul Davies Kitchens and Appliances". 

As in previous years we'll be sending out street teams to all the events and finding out how much you're enjoying the festival. 

You may spot us on Victoria Square; in Le Mans, on Deansgate, on Knowsley Street or in the Market Place, Bolton Market or Crompton Place. If you see us come and say "Hello" and you could be on-air and broadcasting across the town. On the Saturday evening of the Food and Drink Festival Kev Gurney's Club Tropicana will be live from the Market Place from 6pm. 

Bolton FM Festival Radio starts at 6am on Friday 24th August with the "Power Hour with Lee Bower" and runs through the festival weekend finishing with the "Triple A Rock Show with Andrew and Alan". We'll be bringing you all the interviews from the Food and Drink Festival and a regular Festival What's On Guide letting you know what's on and where. 

So tuck-in to some great radio and the Food and Drink Festival!
